The AgStar Fund for Rural America is now accepting applications for their Emergency Response (EMS) Equipment Grant Program.
The mission of this program is to support rural communities in AgStar's service area by funding emergency response equipment for volunteer fire, rescue, or ambulance departments.
This year, AgStar will support rural emergency response departments by providing a total of $150,000 in grants for area departments in need. The EMS grant program was established to help these departments serve their communities.
All rural volunteer emergency response departments located in AgStar's 69-county service area, including Winona County, are eligible to apply if they have not received a grant in the past two years. Applications for grants, up to $3,000, may be submitted online at AgStar.com now through August 31st.
